  •  Conspiracy theory on your part? (0+ / 0-)

    It's possible. But if yours is conspiracy, then you may have to also dismiss the entire New Deal as a conspiracy, too.  I'm no expert but it seems pretty clear the elites reluctantly gave in to the New Deal because of the threat of Communist revolution as a less pleasant alternative.  Expansion of the safety net was far more acceptable than losing their privlledged control over capital.

    And it's probably hard to argue that the Marshall Plan was simply a token of good will from the victors to the defeated.

    ...the train's got its brakes on and the whistle is screaming.
